The Centre's new draft rules governing the country"s coastline have evoked a mixed reaction in Goa where environmentalists expressed concern over the norms while shack owners said their business will get a boost. Early this week, the environment ministry issued the draft Coastal Zone Regulation (CRZ) Notification, 2018. The notification, which proposes expanding land area for development activities and tourism infrastructure while also simplifying the procedure for CRZ clearances, has been uploaded on the ministry"s website for public comments.

Draft CRZ rules: Opening fragile coastal areas for real estate will affect ecology, fishing, says experts 22.4.2018 General News
Opening fragile inter-tidal areas for real estate and infrastructure development would have a huge bearing on coastal ecology and livelihood from fishing, researchers said after the Environment Ministry came out with a new draft for coastal regulations. The draft Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) Notification, 2018, proposes expanding land area for development activities and tourism infrastructure, while simplifying the procedure for CRZ clearances. Taking a critical view of the proposed rules, experts said there are two sets of problems with the new draft -- the process used for framing it and how it opens up coastal spaces for infrastructure development. The draft notification is on the ministry's website and comments have been sought from the public within 60 days. The recently uploaded draft has evidently been drafted by "Delhi-based babus" who are "uneducated" about the sea and have never experienced its violent energy, Chennai-based writer and social activist Nityanand Jayaraman, ...

Coastal Regulation Zone rules to relax for sea-lining structures 11.4.2018 DNA: Money
The Centre has decided to amend the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) regulations to ease redevelopment of sea-facing buildings, and especially slum land measuring around 647 acres in Mumbai by allowing 3 FSI. The slum lands are located in the stretch between Colaba and Borivali. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis recently met the Ministry of Environment and Forest officials and requested them to amend the CRZ norms. As per the current norms, no development happens within 500 meters of the sealine. "Now, this 2009 notification will be amended.

"This will also generate extra housing stock for sale in the open market, the proposal for which has been stuck for seven years," said Prakash Mehta, state minister for Housing. "The sea is the ...
